Japanese and Asian contemporary art is one of the main focuses of the Mori Art Museum's programs, yet “Asia” covers a broad territory, making it difficult to grasp an overall picture of it. The “MAM Research” series intends to examine the multi-layered social, political and economic backgrounds that have given rise to Asian contemporary art and sees to shed light on their historical contexts, while focusing on individual artists, curators, art movements and art institutions throughout Asia. Premised on collaborative projects with archives, research institutions and scholars, “MAM Research” does not limit exibited items to “artworks” but also presents such materials as videos, photographs, texts and historical records.
MAM Research is not currently on view.
